Innumerable books have been written about care giving for the elderly. But Carolie Warren's volume - But Mama How Come Grandpa Get's To Put His Feet Up on the Couch?" talks a fresh approach. it is written to help children better understand the need to remain patient and loving when dealing with the elderly. How can they become part of a circle of love that surrounds and supports this person?
An important part of this message: This elder deserves respect becaue of the work they have done on this earth and the fact their efforts helped support many poeple.
Ms. Warren is a principal at a middle school so she has viewed aging from two perspectives: Young people coming into their maturity and aging people leaving their final mark.
